We just celebrated the swingin' 1940s with big band music and an evening of fine dining and dancing in the beautiful Landmark Center Cortile.  The Once Upon a Time Gala is a vibrant celebration in support of Landmark Center.

There are two new components this year that support the Gala effort:  a Live Auction and Fund-a-Need opportunity, both directly supporting Landmark Center's community programs.  Support from these activities will help us develop and present our annual slate of free and low-cost cultural programs for diverse audiences of all ages. We had an excellent line-up of live auction items that guests to bid on, and support, Landmark Center's accessible public programs.
